OSS funny stuff

You know, if you place your mouse on top of a Gnome menu item (e.g. on top of the “Text Editor”), a tooltip appears that tells you what this program does (e.g. “edit text files”). The whole purpose of this tooltip is to make new unexperienced users feel better and make the system more usable.

Well, after installing gFTP tonight, I was stumbled over their choice of tooltip text: “Multithreaded ftp client.”

Yes, this information is very important for all new users. It’s multithreaded! Hurrah!
